I see no promotion of any blood sport.
Which element of a drag hunt involves blood?

But the article specifically states 'follow a scent laid out for the hounds, rather than a fox, which is known as drag hunting.'.

So the participants would refuse to hunt foxes if the act was repealed? They are only drag hunting because if they want to follow their "sport" they are forced by law to do so.

If someone modifies their lifestyle to comply with the law they are still 'bad'?

It's just a bit of fun for the middle classes, what's wrong with that.

Today, across Britain, huntsmen and women are showcasing their call for the Hunting Act to be repealed and for the cruelty of hunting with dogs for sport to be legalised again.

To thwart the cruel call of the hunters a new national ad campaign has been launched to portray the cruelty of hunting with dogs for sport. The hard-hitting film asks the question; what if it was you? and shows the terror and cruelty of hunting from the hunted animal’s perspective.

Also the latest round of public opinion polling has been released conducted for the League Against Cruel Sports by Ipsos MORI.

This annual survey, which began in 2008, asks around 2,000 people in different parts of Britain whether they thought hunting should remain illegal.

The results showed 80 per cent of the public think that fox hunting should not be made legal again. The figure was 86 per cent against deer hunting, 88 per cent against hare hunting/coursing, 95 per cent against badger baiting and 98 per cent against dog fighting.

The results, which were the same in both rural and urban areas, are the highest figures since the polling began and prove that that the pro hunt lobby are completely out of touch with modern British society. It is now time for the pro hunt lobby to respect the law, respect our wildlife and respect the will of the British people.


Sorry Simon, but the NWN have always done it. Another reason for being a "tight wad" non purchaser.

As for voting UKIP..........sorry Nigel, had me hooked but you've just blown it!!

What a load of cobblers and a reason not to believe everything Simon says. As for tight wads, if the free-loaders keep it up, there won't be any press soon.

There's a certain reverse snobbery attached to being 'anti-hunt'... some of which is just the fact 'they' can afford horses and 'they' wear red jackets. So let's protest...

I wonder how many fair-weather anti-hunters are happy enough to sit in the pub where they might have Sky Sports going on in the background, with some good old-fashioned blood sports attracting the punters?

But boxing's different innit.... Small furry animals ain't getting hurt and the blokes doing the blood-letting are 'one of us'. I reckon there's more blood sport involved than you'd find on a typical drag hunt mind...

People watching boxing matches remind me of the tricoteuses doing their knitting at the foot of the guillotine. Similar mentality, IMO.

I don't like boxing, but to use that as an analogy is pretty dumb. For one thing those people who do boxing as a sport do so knowing full well the risks, likewise the anal retentives who watch boxing. Boxers have a choice of whether or not they climb into the ring. Where as a wild fox does not have any choice of whether it pack of rich snobs on horseback with a pack hounds chase that fox to the point of physical exhaustion, then ripped to pieces by those hounds.

As for those who believe the pro hunt crap about chasing a scent laid by person, well that is the epitomy of f**kwittery.

The fact is once the hounds get a scent of a live fox, that is when those toffs enjoy their so called sport.

I don't like fox hunting
I don't like animals killed in cold blood

114 million animals killed by halal - 12% without stunning (according to the GUARDIAN) - before I'm accused of being all "Daily Mail". That's Approximately 15 million.

http://www.theguardian.com/lifeandstyle/20...aughter-involve

Why do you not comment on this? Because its for meat instead of sport? It is still cruel.

Foxes? 50 by the hounds at a guess.

Just a thought.....???? blink.gif
